i actually agree with just a fan opinion, silus might be disguising as elena and told damon about her 'feeling'. poor damon, again. i love him, but i still think it will always be stefan :)

I don't know why everyone sounds so angry, but I love DELENA!!!!
I love Damon since the first time I saw him, I mean, why people keep talking "why Stefan got screwed again?!" Hey, he always gets the girl from Katherine to Elena, even when Damon met Elena first. I think Damon's love for Elena is as big as Stefan, so I'm happy!
and I want to see Caroline and Klaus together, and I want to see how Jeremy and others react to Delena new pairing, it must be different from Stelena.
I can't wait!!!!

I am so upset! Poor Stefan got screwed over AGAIN!! I was really rooting for Stelena. Ever since season one, Elena and Stefan have had this special kind of connection that was so sweet and caring. Stefan is such a class act, whereas Damon... just, doesn't seem like The One for Elena! I love Damon, don't get me wrong, but I'm not a Delena fan at all. And Stefan's doppelgänger is Silas?! What?? That seems so random! And then Stefan gets thrown in a lake?! I'm so upset! Now everyone is gonna think Silas is Stefan! And if Stefan is locked under the water, is he gonna die?! And how can we have hope for Stelena if he has trapped under the water?? :'( it just seems like Stelena/Stefan got screwed really bad this season.
AND I also want to know, how closely is the show following the books, anyone who has read all of them? I want to know who Elena ends up with; or if that's relevant at all if the show isn't following the books. Someone comfort me!! :(

Since Silas was there, he could have been Elena telling Damon how she felt. So then everyone will assume he left town. Silas can change into whomever he wants and can run rampant in mystic falls n

I just finished watching the ep. And I'm in tears, she choose Damon? I mean maybe they bring out the best of each other, that's why their together. I was hoping " It will always be Stephan " quote would work its magic, but it didn't. Shows still very interesting though, I wonder where they're journey of being together will take them. I really have hopes for Caroline and Klaus. I can't wait to see what leads to that. Over all the shows good never gets boring. People complain but I mean, what's their to complain about with the Vampire Diaries, AND The Originals coming this fall! So pumped for fall I want summer to be over!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Elena: Why don't you ever let anyone see the good in you?
Damon: When people see good they expect good. And I don't wanna live up to anyone's expectations.
